Today, let us look at Proverbs 5:1-2: “My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding: That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.”
Leaning to our own understanding is discouraged; but listening to those who have been in the Word, who have committed their footsteps to the Lord and who are accountable to instruction of the Word; in addition to studying the Word on your own, will keep us in tune with God’s understanding. When we lean on our own understanding of events we are trusting in our own strength and not that of our LORD.
When we have an intimate relationship with our Lord, discretion and knowledge are our cornerstone as we witnesses and share His Word with others. Think on these things as you enter this day with our LORD.
